Ikat designs go back centuries and can be found in many countries around the world, and they still remain fresh and modern today. We love the black and white ikat on these large throw pillows made of banana leaf fiber. Perfect indoor or outdoor use. Each piece of material, known as hinabol, is the width of the loom on which it's woven and then sewn together with other pieces to create the pattern seen here. Handmade in the Philippines.

  • 26”x26”
  • Abaca fiber (banana leaf) - this textile has a slightly scratchy texture similar to sisal
  • Insert not included
  • Handmade in the Philippines

Master weaver, Myla Abalang, and her weaving community in the Philippines produces the hinabol for these pillows. They are part of the Higaonon people, an indigenous tribal community with a strong weaving tradition that is being threatened by deforestation of their native forests/land. They are part of a larger cooperative that provides training and skills development to help them maintain their traditional crafts while supporting their communities. Sustainable harvesting practices and reforestation are key aspects of this cooperative’s model.

Traditionally used for sling bags carried by men and women alike or as offerings to the gods, hinabol is the result of a labor-intensive process from growing the plant to harvesting the fibers to hand-dyed with natural pigments such as coconut husk, jackfruit and indigo. The weaving is done by women using a narrow upright loom only 14”-16” wide. The end product is a beautiful, translucent cloth that is sewn together to create larger panels and designs.
